What a hearty and delicious soup. We tinkered with the recipe a bit and added some sliced mushrooms, plus a bit of garlic. We also opted to serve it over rice, rather than treating it as just a chowder. I think it'd be really good over pasta as well. We might try using some fettuccine noodles the next time we try making this. It's a really good and quick meal.
